Subject: Senior School Heating
It has been our consistent endeavor at DPS Budgam to improve the facilities to improve your child’s school experience. In this context, we are building a state-of-the-art indoor sports complex, which will include a swimming pool that will meet high standards set for schools. We have already communicated this to you.
We have also decided to extend modern, internal heating to the senior school building. While our junior school building has internal heating, the senior school has until last year been heated using gas cylinder based delonghis. However, not only is this considered relatively unsafe but students and teachers have often complained about fumes that cause eye and throat irritation. By implementing a heating system that blows hot air, we will finally have our campus heated by modern and safe means. As is the case with many such modern systems, this will require capital investments that the school is planning to make over the next few months.
The heating system will cost more to operate than delonghis and the new heating fee for the full winter season will be ₹ 850. This is the same fee that Junior School students pay.
If you have any questions or concerns about this change, please do let us know. You can send us an email at [email protected] by Friday, 5th October 2018 so that we can start procuring related infrastructure.
I am very pleased that we are taking a step that makes DPS Budgam one of a handful of schools that provides clean and safe internal heating to students during Kashmir’s cold winters. We believe a comfortable environment will help our students learn better.
